Basically, yes. Your hacks are yours to make. There is no universal opinion that decides what's good and what isn't so no hack is actually terrible.
My hack hasn't been posted here yet, I'll post it when I have significant progress.
I've actually tried to assemble a team here to work on a seperate project of mine: expanding 3rd generation's multiplayer capabilities. But no one volunteered so that's on hold.

So I can make the most horrible hack ever and if I think it's good nobody's opinions will matter? Also, I never seen you make a hack.

If you think your hack is good, then that's enough. Make what you think is good, because you can't please everybody.

That's where I disagree. Positive reception is always nice but public opinion shouldn't dictate a hack. If I include something in my hack that is important to me, it doesn't matter if everyone bashes that decision. I'll still go through with it because I want to.

Okay but people in general, people want something in a hack, so you have to care what people think of your hack or they'll bash it.

Sorry, I wasn't clear about the story based thing. I meant to say it's one of the few hacks I like because of the gameplay rather than story. I didn't mean the game itself isn't story based, I meant I liked it for reasons other than the story.
Also, I could be wrong, but I believe the mods allow hacks to be posted based on forum rules and the post's complience with regulations, not the hack itself. I don't think they'd reject posting a new hack based on their opinion of the hack itself.

Like I said, my opinion doesn't reflect everyone else's opinion so I can't say why it's this popular. Your opinion is yours; if you don't like it, that's your opinion. We can't all agree to like the same thing.
Quote:One more thing: a reason you quit is because of people's opinions? I already said your hack is dedicated to you. Who cares about what people think? Make what you want to make.

Different hackers respond to criticism differently, but their hack is made with their best interests in mind. It's up to hackers to decide if their hack is decent or not. If voters think these awesome hacks are awesome, so be it.
Quote:In my personal opinion, Light Platinum had outstanding maps. Not just in graphics, but in design. It also had a brilliant variety of Pokemon and a challenging difficulty. Only thing is, I couldn't get the story, seemed too generic. Normally I care more about story than anything, but Light Platinum's brilliance makes an exception here.

The same rule applies here. Get to know people on the forums for a while, I haven't met any of my Pokecommunity friends in real life but we're still friends because we know each other here.
August 9th, 2011 11:25 AMTcoppy
Yeah I know, but this is all online, it's not like your gonna meet these people irl

The best way to makes friends is to know them for a while.
August 9th, 2011 10:54 AMTcoppy
Okay, just give a whole lot of people friend requests all the time, thats all xD
